By Nora Weaver, NOFA Tri-State Bulk Order Coordinator
Mark your calendars! The annual NOFA Tri-State Bulk Order will open on January 1st, 2021. Plan to shop our great selection of supplies for growers of all sizes and skill levels. By buying your supplies through us, you’ll help fund critical programming and activities at participating NOFA chapters while getting great products at affordable prices.
The bulk order period is open from January 1st-31st. Once open, you’ll be able to browse the catalog and order online (or via printable order form), or get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a paper catalog. We recommend that you plan to shop early this year, to help your Bulk Order team and our suppliers best manage any COVID-related impacts on product availability and shipping that may occur.
This year we’re planning a catalog full of the products you loved last year – harvest crates from Organic Growers Supply, compost and potting soil from Vermont Compost, Ideal Compost Company and Earth Care Farm, AEA liquid amendments, Fertrell livestock supplements, and Certified Organic seed potatoes from Fedco Moose Tubers – as well as exciting new products selected with the input of the passionate growers on our staff and board, in the hopes of setting you up for next season’s success.
Pick up for most items will take place on Saturday March 13th, 2021. Tubers, onion sets and backordered items can be picked up on Saturday April 17th, 2021.
Concerned about COVID? We are, too – and we’ll make this year’s pickup plans with the health and safety of our site coordinators, volunteers, customers and our broader communities in mind.
Questions? Comments? I’d love to hear from you. Email me at: email@example.com.
